Fantasy Football: Top Week 8 Waiver Adds for Each Position

I spent the last 24 hours trying to find an accurate comparison to how it felt being a fantasy football fan in Week 7. And then I sat down at the poker table…

I won’t bore anyone with details, but the experiences were eerily similar. Bad beats, longshot draws and underperformers haunted me. “The Underachievers” (my aptly-named fantasy squad) bombed, dead and lifeless at the hands of inconsistency and injury.

Needless to say, I shed no tears for NFL Week 7. It’s in the past, and Week 8 is a new beginning.

Just like in poker, all we can do is put our chips in the middle with the best hand. In fantasy football, you build the best team you can with informed decisions—trades, waiver adds and matchup plays—then hit the button and let the cards play out.

With multiple teams on byes at this point in the season, special emphasis is placed on waiver adds and matchup management. 

The following slideshow highlights some of the best waiver adds for Week 8. 


Note: Players listed are available in 50 percent or more of most fantasy leagues.
